HELLAS CONSTRUCTION LEADING TURF INDUSTRY WITH UNMATCHED DURABILITY AND RELIABILITY

AUSTIN, TX – 5 May, 2017 – Hellas Construction leads the industry in sports construction, product innovation, manufacturing, and installation because to Hellas, more than the game matters. Hellas is continually using its knowledge and quality materials to manufacture its products to withstand the test of time and elements, without failure.

While others on the market are scrambling to improve their products and keep up, Hellas Construction is raising the standard in sports surfacing with its high quality, durable, and reliable synthetic turf. Hellas offers the best turf, by using the best components to manufacture its own turf including top quality C8 resins from The Dow Chemical Company. Only top grade resins are used by Hellas to manufacture its durable fibers that are used to make its Matrix and Velocity XP turf. Hellas manufactures more than 80% of the products they use, ensuring precise quality control and timely delivery.

Hellas’ Matrix® turf is made from monofilament, C8 Resin fibers and considered to be the most resilient, stable, and durable turf on the market. The Matrix turf with Helix technology consists of twisted fibers of two different blade sizes and colors with enhanced playability that bounces back quickly after use and prevents “splash out” of the infill material. The Matrix product’s quality, performance, and longevity are unparalleled in the industry. Matrix turf is the choice of schools and universities nationwide, and the trusted turf of the Dallas Cowboys. After over 10 years on the market, every installation of Matrix turf has been proven without failure.

The Velocity XPTM turf is a slit-film, two-color combination of C8 Resin fibers. These fibers, incorporated with the strongest and most dimensionally-stable backing system available on the market, include a pre-coat of polyurethane, for the ultimate in tuft-bind. Velocity XP turf is known and recommended by architects for its lower abrasion qualities and durable fibers, enabled by high-quality base polyethylene C8 resins. Choosing the Velocity XP turf from Hellas Construction will ensure your field will look and perform beautifully for many years to come.

Hellas’ Cushdrain® pad is a monolithic, paved into place, elastic layer that increases the shock absorption of the artificial turf system, which will result in a lower GMAX, which means a safer playing surface with reduced concussions. Not only does it improve drainage of the field, increasing playability after heavy rains, but it also provides planarity that holds its form and position through three to four lifecycles of turf. This extends the longevity of the turf by absorbing stress and diffusing the point of impact.

When filled with Hellas’ own Realfill® infill, the Matrix or Velocity XP turf systems create an ideal playing surface with excellent traction and playability, while looking better and being easier to maintain than natural grass. The Matrix and Velocity XP turf systems are resilient, stable, and durable, withstanding extreme weather elements, applicable for any sport, and good for indoor or outdoor use. Both turf systems are resistant to insects, rot, fungus, mildew, UV and heat degradation, and allow for consistent drainage.

Hellas uses its own fleet of construction equipment and experienced crews to complete each project. Hellas’ knowledge, experience, and reputation in sports construction results in projects that are managed more efficiently, cost-effective, and finished on time. Great attention to detail, unmatched customer service, and reliable products lead to repeat referrals and repeat business. Hellas is changing the sports industry by giving more cities, schools, universities, and organizations, both big and small, a first-class sports destination to showcase their athletes, keep them in the game while providing the amenities and features that keep fans cheering. Hellas constructs fields and sports complexes all across the nation, in time frames that most find impossible, so projects are on budget and clients are ready for game day.
